Well this clever little bastards have gotten into my barn and yard . This past week they have killed 2 chickens, 2 ducks and 2 rabbits. Sneaky aren't they. I have my rabbits now totally locked at night in a dog kennel cage and my other animals were already locked inside a tall fence area but the fox are sneaking around and coming around during the day when they are out.

This is the bra I've been working on. The beaded gray studs are from a belt I took apart. The fringe I bought at Michaels in Calif. which I reinforced The coin like trim on the bottom are from two necklaces I bought at Goodwill for 99 cents each. The fabric is the same fabric I used for my Hakama pants earlier this year
After disappointing sales for Xmas even after having free shipping(basically one sale) , I will no longer sell jewelry, hair accessories, bags, scarves or belts anymore. Once the listings expired or sold-thats it.(I've got to put up a few belts I made but thats it). My mom's, mother in law and son's site will stay up. I will continue to sell my patchwork skirts and cloth diapers but mostly as custom orders.

A new section is going up on my etsy store called Frohlich Wunderland. Its German for Merry Wonderland. This section will sell beautiful crafted cross stitch items from bookmarkers, baby bibs and hooded baby towels. My mom has been doing this for at least 50 years. She uses smaller gauged aida cloth and Irish linen from Europe and floss made from Germany or France. Nothing is made in China! Since most items won't be up until later today you can check out some of her private collection on here. I hope to have most of her items up by the end of today. www.erikaschiquis.etsy.com
